Top case lids have been problematic since the GL1800 was introduced. If more customers had insisted that Honda repair them under warranty and fewer had gone to aftermarket "fixes" I think Honda would have addressed the issue by now. There are several threads on the subject...

Take off the plastic inside the trunk to access the locking mechanism. You will see a cross bar that runs from right to left. That should drop down after the trunk is opened. On each end of this crossbar is a fastner (rivet). Take a screwdriver and pry between the tabs on each end of the crossbar slightly just enough to free the bar. Add some lube when finished.
